Ministries exists to Glorify God. Through His grace, by His power and
in His presence, we desire that God change Japan, work through us,
igniting a desirewithin us, and those whom He touches through us, to
seek a passionate relationship with Jesus Christ. Through us we pray He
brings the message of the Gospel to the Japanese people, while
encouraging Japanese Christians to walk with Christ and boldly share
their faith. We pray God will bring revival to the nation of Japan!"
As Rocky and Marla
minister together in their home city of Kitakyushu and in churches all
over this country, they are seeing one very distinct pattern amomg
Japanese Christian groups. Christian churches and groups are often very
isolated, traditional, and populated mostly by the older generation.
Rocky and Marla feel God calling them to spread His fame in Japan, and
bring revival to the nation through those who are professing Christians
and those who will come to know salvation through Jesus Christ.
Because of their heart for young people to hear the Gospel in a form
that speaks the language of their generation, Rocky and Marla are
actively seeking to make Christian music available in a form and style
that young people enjoy listening to. Rocky and Marla have written
original songs, many of which are on their CD's. At the same time, they
seek to write more original songs, praise and worship songs, and
translate many of the praise and worship songs that God is moving
through. As a duo, Rocky and Marla are called "R.A.M.'s Voice" and they
have recorded original albums and one bilingual praise album. Aroma
Ministries seeks to make those praise songs available to Japanese
Christians to use in their worship and ministry, plus expose
non-Christians to this music so the Holy Spirit can move in their
hearts as they listen to it. This is made possible by the foundation of
Aroma 36 Studio, a recording studio in the home of the Ayatsuka's,
which is being used to record dynamic contemporary Christian music
written and performed by Rocky and Marla, and others as well.
The Lord is also moving through Rocky and Marla's concerts and
testimonies, and Rocky speaking ability. Rocky's messages are filled
with simple, but powerful truths straight from God and His Word. While
not on the road doing concerts and speaking, at home Rocky and Marla
also host and attend home fellowships and Bible studies.
In addition to these activities, Rocky and Marla have many dreams for
the future to expand Aroma Ministries so that more Japanese people can
come to know a deep and true relationship with the God who created and
loves them, through Jesus Christ.

the Gospel include...|
